Annual Benefits Enrollment Ends Friday

The Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS), which administers health and other insurance benefits for State of Texas employees, will close its annual enrollment period for Plan Year 2016 on Friday, July 24.

During the annual enrollment period, employees can make changes to their benefits portfolios without a qualifying life event. If you don't want to change your benefits, no action is required. Your current benefits will remain the same for the upcoming academic year (9/1/2015 to 8/31/2016).

For your convenience, you may make changes to your benefits portfolio in one of three ways:

• online 24/7 on the ERS website;

• by calling ERS during normal business hours at 866-399-6908 or;

• In the office of Employment Services and Operations (ESO), by scheduling an appointment with Paula Jannett at 713-221-8463 or jannettp@uhd.edu.

A representative from Aflac will be on site in S910 and available to answer questions about supplemental insurance between 9:15 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Friday, July 24.
